Be honest with yourself: Are you actually good at sniping from heaven on Mirage? How good are you at holding down long doors on Dust 2? Are you more successful pushing towards the A site or B site on Ancient?
Players have to make some tricky choices when it comes to how and where they play on maps in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and without precise statistics, it’s tough to know what angles and spots players are strong at holding, and which they need more practice on. Even CSGO’s in-game statistical tools aren’t especially good at breaking these sorts of things down to the granular level that a player could actually benefit from them.
That’s where Scope.gg’s map performance tool comes in.
Scope.gg’s map performance tool gives player a thorough breakdown of every map they play on. This shows how well players perform in terms of damage and kills, and can be futher broken down by playing sides. Putting all of this information together allows players to decipher the situations they most excel in and the areas where they might need to improve.
Here’s an example of a match on Inferno:
This represents the area-by-area breakdown of a T-side half. Green areas show a strong performance, while red shows a weak performance.
In this case, the map shows strong performances in the key choke points that gain the terrorists access to a site, around mid and banana. But once the sites are taken, the player is quite weak in helping to hold them. This kind of analysis can be performed at scale and with different maps. When combined with Scope.gg’s other tools, players can get some in-depth analysis on areas where they can improve.
How to use Scope.gg map performance tool
- Go to Scope.gg
- Select “sign in with Steam” or “sign in with FACEIT”
- Obtain verification codes and keys to complete sign-up
- Navigate to Scope.gg dashboard
The sign-in process for Scope.gg might seem intimidating but it’s actually quite easy and is largely automated. Scope.gg requires the player to sign in with either Steam or FACEIT. From there, the player will be asked for various sharing codes that will allow Scope.gg to have access to the player’s replay data and match results. While those are normally kept somewhat hidden from players, Scope.gg provides links to the pages where this information can be found as it becomes relevant.
Once the player completes the sign-in process, they’re directed straight to the Scope.gg dashboard. This gives the player access to the map performance tool alongside several other resources that can be used to help better decipher and understand performance.
The end result is clear: For players looking to improve their game in CSGO, Scope.gg offers a unique opportunity to learn. If you’re looking to get an edge on the opposition, this is a great way to go about it.
